           Summary: Unexpected onscreen keyboard expose/collapse behavior in
           Product: OpenMoko
           Version: 2007.2
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: minor
          Priority: P2
         Component: openmoko-terminal
        AssignedTo: buglog at lists.openmoko.org
        ReportedBy: cwixon at usa.net

In the new openmoko-terminal2, exposing/collapsing the onscreen virtual keyboard
moves you around in the scrollback buffer.

Expected behavior: If your cursor is at the bottom of the screen with the
keyboard exposed, then collapsing the keyboard will expose more of the
scrollback buffer, the content will "slide" down to fill the space, and your
cursor will still be at the (new) bottom of the screen.  Re-exposing the
keyboard will "slide" the content back up.

Observed behavior: Exposing the keyboard acts correctly, and causes everything
to move up the screen.  But collapsing the keyboard does not -- the active
cursor position stays where it is, and blank space opens up in the window
underneath.  Accordingly, repeatedly collapsing and exposing the keyboard will
push your prompt up the screen to the top.

This doesn't impair functionality as far as I can tell, but it's a user
interface quirk.  For the record, the old (mrxvt) terminal behaves correctly.
